Michael Hunter More Than Ready To Fight Joseph Parker

Former WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker finally returned to the ring last Saturday night in Texas, and knocked out Shawndell Winters on the undercard of the welterweight bout between Mikey Garcia and Jessie Vargas.

After the contest was over, Parker began pleading to land a fight against a top rated contender.

"I want to keep busy and get hopefully two more fights this year and finish off with a good bang at the end of the year. Listen, I want to fight Derek Chisora. I was supposed to go and fight him. I pulled out, I wanted to reschedule, but he went off, fought someone else. I want to fight Dillian Whyte again. I want to fight everyone in the top five, or top 10 in the world. I want to get anyone and everyone," Parker said.

But fighters like Whyte and Chisora are already scheduled to take part in other bouts in the coming months.

Another fighter, in the top ten, who is also looking for a big fight - is Michael Hunter, who last saw action in December when he fought to a close points draw with Alexander Povetkin.

Hunter is more than ready to answer Parker's call for an in-ring showdown, and his team believes the New Zealand star would get knocked out in the bout.

"Parker is an easy opponent for us," Hunter's manager Martin Mikolajczak told Sky Sports. "Parker is slow on his feet and his cardio is terrible. Michael would definitely KO Parker."

Parker holds a close and some felt controversial win over Andy Ruiz, but lost twelve round decisions to Anthony Joshua and Dillian Whyte.

Hunter's manager Mikolajczak warned Parker, that he would be facing a style of boxer that he'd never faced in the past - "Whyte and AJ are completely different fighters to Michael."

Nice match

Just don't see Parker's management rushing to make that fight; Hunter is too high risk/low reward for them.

[QUOTE=Zelda;20442180]good for what? money? or a mandatory position? I repeat, if those two things are not involved, it is highly unlikely Parker will fight Hunter at this point. And I don't see either as of now.[/QUOTE] I could see it…
